PCGuyIV continues his TT series this week by asking us what three changes we would make to WordPress to improve our blogging experience. I am going to relate my ideas to the iPhone app, where I both compose and read posts most of the time.
1. By far, the most annoying thing to me in the app is line spacing, and this is nothing new, though it is more irritating in the block editor. Sometimes I want to single space a poem (or whatever), which is fine when you’re at a keyboard and can shift-return, but you can’t do that on a phone. I have to dive into the code and painstakingly put the “br” (break) code in after each line. Ugh…
2. I would like all posts to open in the reader 100% of the time unless I specifically click a button to visit the site. I hate reading posts in a browser because you can’t save them and it’s more cumbersome to comment. I have no idea why some posts flip me out of the app and into Safari, but I suspect it has to do with ads. 🙄
3. Why do I have to type the “alt text” in again when I grab an image from my media library? I obsessively went through my pics and gave all of them a name and an alt. This should appear with the image when I use it from the app (it appears when I compose a post in the browser). Fix, please!
